UNI Global Union, IndustriALL Global Union and the Clean Clothes Campaign urge brands to contribute to the compensation fund before second anniversary of Rana Plaza building collapse

With one month to go before the second anniversary of the Rana Plaza disaster the three organisations…UNI Global Union, IndustriALL Global Union and the Clean Clothes Campaign…negotiating on behalf of the victims – are ramping up demands on global brands linked to the disaster to fill an USD 8.5million gap in the funding needed to deliver full and fair compensation to each of the over 5,000 individuals with eligible claims….Amongst the worst offenders is Benetton, who is yet to pay a penny into the Fund. Others including Walmart, Mango and The Children's Place are being singled out for making donations that fall far short of expectations. Other companies still to pay the required amount include Lee Cooper, JC Penny, Matalan and Kik.
